I felt like Audrey Hepburn!
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had so much trouble getting a dress but the amazing stylists at Rent the Runway went completely out of their way and when my original dress' quality had me without anything to wear, they sent me four more dresses! This dress fit me like a glove and with my four-inch heels the gown just touched the floor. It was perfect. I got compliments all night long, many telling me I looked like a 1940's movie star. I have a smaller bust and rib cage so the gown was no problem for me, but if you have a broader torso and a larger bust, you might want to rethink this dress. I had zero trouble dancing and moving around and in the end, I was so sad to send it back! Perfect night with a perfect dress!

It fits a little right in the torso, but overall it runs pretty true to size. I'm also a little short, so the dress was slightly long on me.

This wasn't my first choice, and I wouldn't say it was my favorite ever, but it did the job.

Super easy fit, was a little tight around the bust but nothing major or unbearable. The peplum added just the right amount of flair and has a silvery tone underneath that worked for the space industry gala I wore this for. I have a small waist but I also have enough hip that I wasn't completely crazy about the added fabric there. Fabric is comfy and it's a relatively easy wear. If you don't mind a little hip baggage and you're looking for a safe black option with that little something extra to set you apart, this does the trick.

Belle of the Ball!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was number 3 of 3 that I rented for Mardi Gras weekend in New Orleans for our very busy weekend of events. Every dress was a success (2 formals and one luncheon cocktail dress). My other rental was the same designer and I wore a size 4 but because of the design of this dress and my ample top :-) I needed the size 6. Literally the compliments flowed all night. This ball was tails and white gloves so very formal. This was absolutely exactly the look I wanted. My friend in the pic is also wearing a RTR dress by the way.

Dress was elegant
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size

The only downside is if you have a large bust. I had to do a lot of squeezing to get into the dress and then wore a shall to overcome some of the "spillover". Otherwise, the dress was very well received

Nice dress...
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Great dress, comfortable, especially if you are feeling bloated or have something to hide in the mid section. The peplum is wonderfully dramatic, but It is black so that makes it very basic, great if you don't want to be the center of attention but have some uniqueness.

Great fit, great length. The long size was great for tall girls. I'm 5'6" and was able to wear my highest heels with this!
